RMH Surgical Management -2015 – present
I upgraded their Excel based, medical claims spreadsheet to a newly designed
and developed Microsoft Access database for better management of their data. Then, a
few years later, based upon hearing their needs and seeing their company direction, I
felt a web solution would be a better fit. I redesigned their desktop solution to an online
solution using MySQL and PHP. I administer all the data and the current database
forms their company uses, and I build new web forms and database tables based on
requests and needs. Currently there are over 25 active users of the web site.
I provide automation where needed and have recently built a tool to extract “scrape” data
from a major medical billing clearinghouse’s website.

AutoPayment Finder – 2014 – 2018
I took over development and administration of this MySQL and PHP business.
This business provided automobile advertising to car dealers. I was able to catch the
company’s vision, and added new database tables and PHP forms and useful analysis
tools for the over 30 users of the web site.
I don’t do any more work for the company, because the owner passed away.

This MS Access database was already developed when my services were
requested. Currently, I do the database maintenance and upgrades for the donors and
donation database this company uses.

Sicola Landscaping – 2007 – present
I designed this database in MS Access to manage their lawn care services. The
accounting portion is integrated with Quickbooks.

various cases,

10/2013- 5/2014 – ExxonMobil / Wisemen Consulting
The Exxon project involved developing a SQL database of "Qualified Manufacturers"
accessible globally through the corporate intranet site. I designed the database using
MS Access first, then upgraded to a SQL Server database, and the QML intranet site
was designed using ASP, HTML, JQuery, CSS and AJAX.

The initial database was an Access database, but as the user requirements grew, the
SQL Server/Intranet solution was a better option.
I utilized the following technologies at this project: Access database design and
development, SQL Server, ASP, Sharepoint, Infopath, and VBA
4/2013- 7/2013 – Centerpoint Energy / Wisemen Consulting
This was a short term project where my assignment was to build an MS Access
database to replace the existing Excel file which managed projects.
The database was a mixture of regular database design, VBA, and Excel Automation.
10/2010- 3/2013 – Automotive Advertising
This is very much different than my past endeavors. This was a part time endeavor until
1/2012, when it became full time. I took a non functional website, and using PHP and
MySQL, transformed it to a lucrative web property. I designed the database with MySQL
and programmed its functionality with PHP. For administration I use phpMyAdmin and
MS Access.
I built a website interactive program with the Python programming language which
resides on several Ubuntu/Linux based machines, which I also administer.

whether checks of high value need to be submitted to them. All objects, tables, queries,
forms, reports, and modules were adjusted.
9/2008-10/2010 -Geokinetics / Addison Search Consultant Houston/Texas
I developed a template using VBA code in Excel to put the various worksheets in an
Excel “Fee Build Up” into an acceptable format for upload into an Oracle database
system. I worked closely with the members of the Oracle team to develop this
acceptable format. This “FBU” is used in various countries around the world. The
“uploader” program is used to upload North American, Latin American, and Australian
exploration projects into Oracle which allows for a better cost analysis to take place
which in turn saves the company millions of dollars and makes them more competitive in
their bidding processes.

6/2008-6/2009 -Shell Oil & Gas / Disys Consultant Houston/Texas
I was called back to Shell for additional modifications to databases I had built earlier in
2008. Additional reports were added to report information with an Access database.
Charts and pivot tables are formulated with Microsoft Excel. Again, I was called back on
a part time basis to enhance the database application I originally built.
4/2008-10/2008 – Gulf States Toyota/ Everfind Consultant Houston/Texas
Duties included redesigning a current parts database for the main parts ordering
department of the company.
I redesigned a current Access and made it more efficient and added enhancements
which will make the company more revenue in the future.
I created historical reports which will allow for better decision making based on past
Changes made were very noticeable and implemented immediately.
The changes made were so desirable that my name was given to other’s in the company
with data needs, and I am currently working on an Excel/Access project which processes
(inserts relevant financial data based on each department, from a SQL database) and
saves a financial spreadsheet based on the department in an Access table.
The input data for each department will be received using VBA and inserted into an
Access table where it can be further analyzed and inserted into an Oracle database.
9/2007-2/28/2008 – Shell Oil & Gas / Disys Consultant Houston/Texas
Duties included redesigning and building an Inventory database for the Shell Chemicals
Finance Department. Data is downloaded from SAP into Excel and collected from
different sources then it is imported into an Access database via a user interface. Users
have different access rights based on their password. Summary financial reports can be
generated from the database based on region, company, product business unit, main
product group, and others. Customized
SQL based on user selection is produced and results are used for various reports and
This database can produce Excel charts with dual axes based on user selection. Also
data can be exported to Excel and analyzed in a pivot table format.
Some of the charts and reports this database can produce are as follows:
 PBU Summary
 Enterprise Summary
 Trend (volume, $/mt) by Region
 Trend (volume, $/mt) by Finished Product
 Trend (volume, $/mt) by Other & WIP types
 Trend (volume, $/mt) by Product Hierarchy
 Waterfall for Inventory Change Value
 Trend of Inventory Turns
 Trend of Inventory DIO
 Trend of Inventory Stock Type
 Trend (volume, targets) by Region
 Trend (volume, targets) by Finished Product
 Trend (volume, targets) by Other & WIP types
 Trend (volume, targets) by Product Hierarchy
Selection can be made by a date range and can be archived based on selection.
The information that is gathered from these reports save the Shell corporation millions of
dollars based on wise financial conclusions gathered from the data being in one area.
This database has its own 26+ page documentation to demonstrate how to use the
I was also in charge of migrating and expanding a current Excel application to a
Microsoft Access platform. Since the “Inventory Database” was so successful, my way of
generating charts was standardized. The application is known as the “Cost to Serve”
application. This database allows the importing of SAP data from 4 different sources into
an Access database. Customized SQL based on user selection is produced and results
are used for various reports and charts. Data is
from the balance sheet, GL, PL, as well as the cost centers. Users are allowed to run
maintenance or just run reports based on their password.
By analyzing the costs associated with each category, trends can be realized and cost
savings can be had. The Shell corporation will save millions of dollars through the ability
to analyze their current expenditures and forecasting potential financial pitfalls.
The data can be analyzed according to 3 different models. Each model has its own set
of categories and subcategories.
The results it produces can be analyzed in chart or report format. Some of the reports
and charts that can be produced are:
 Detail By Region
 Enterprise
 Detail By Product Hierarchy
 Unit Cost by Product Hierarchy
 Unit Cost by Category Groupings
 Index by Product Hierarchy
 Index by Category
 Waterfall by Category
 Unit Cost By Region Chart
 Unit Cost By Type Chart

Data has the ability to be archived based on user selection and reports or charts can be
made based on this archive if necessary.
I was also part of a project team, and many meetings, to decommission an antiquated
data system. Data was held in an Oracle database and an Access database was build to
handle the reporting needs that may be required by taxing authorities. I successfully
created an Oracle to Access link and created dynamic reports from that data.

I implemented a “Work Order Management Database System”. This is an Access
database which uses data from SAP transactions to formulate "intelligent" reports. The
reports share important awareness data with the employees to whom the work orders
I implemented an “Equipment Management” database. This database uses data from
SAP transactions to give “at a glance” insight to which equipment is in stock, on order,
pending removal from the field, and pending on a current order. This report gives
awareness to when a particular piece of material may become in short supply so proper
preparations may be made to acquire more in a time conscience manner.
I implemented a contractor inspection website request form using ASP, HTML, and XML
technologies as the front-end interface, and SQL Server on the back-end database.
This website, located at, allows contractors
to make requests for inspections from their web browser. This enhances the inspection
request process, normally handled by phone, by reducing errors due to incomplete or
misunderstood information. Information is entered at the website portal, validated by the
job number, then results are emailed and sent by pager to the respective employee
handling the job.
I implemented the Major Underground Department intranet using ASP and HTML
technologies. The purpose of this site is to centralize storage of PDF formatted work
order reports and inventory reports, as well as to provide a point for departmental

Access database and produces Excel reports.
I redesigned 2 Quattro Pro Applications to an MS Excel Format, the Motor Start
Application and the Voltage Drop Application (VoltageDrop.xls).

I implemented a “Transformer Load Management Database System”. This database
holds Transformer load information compiled since March, 2001 to June 2007. The
purpose of this database is to monitor the history of a transformer at certain GLNs and
Work Centers. Excessive loading could cause problems for the customer. These
problem areas are being notated in the database.
I have been able to develop various accounting reports from MS Access queries using
SAP data. These reports include among others, Plan vs. Actual Cost Reports, Cost
Element reports, 5 year Moving Average reports, Material Usage reports.
